UKS Postcard Swap - March

For this month's Postcard Swap on UK Stampers Sam has given us free rein to do whatever we want to. This is always a problem for me because I can never decide what to do. I decided to focus on a stamp I haven't used yet and narrowed it down to Katzelkraft's So Special plate which I bought recently. I've been wanting this plate for the splatter and splodge stamps which I have already used a lot but I'm not sure about the main image on this plate which is the monkey gentleman above. To be honest he freaks me out a bit but I decided to have a go and see what I could come up with. I stamped the monkey image, masked it and then used the DI on craft sheet technique to add colour.  I was inspired by this post on Stamping Matilda's blog to use her colour scheme of rusty hinge and picked raspberry DIs. I added spiced marmalade DI on the parts close to the image that didn't pick up any ink. I stamped the clock image from the same set randomly over the card with Memento London fog and the splodge stamp with Brilliance cosmic copper. I also used Penny Black's bead border, MME's wild asparagus and a decorative square by B-Line Designs. I added some decorative tape to the top corners.
